The quarterly ratings fortunes of cable networks often ride on a single show, and that was the case for the likes of AMC, A&E and Own during the first three months of the year.
AMC surged behind record ratings for “The Walking Dead,” and Own had its best showing to date thanks in large part to Tyler Perry soap “The Haves and the Have Nots.” On the other hand, the decline of “Duck Dynasty,” though still a top program, produced noticeable declines for A&E.
